Celebrate Mendelssohn – and help support the Heifetz Institute! Join us in Washington, DC, for a gala celebration of the youthful masterpieces and profound mature works by child prodigy, virtuoso pianist, and supremely gifted composer Felix Mendelssohn, whose Overture to A Midsummer Night’s Dream – written when he was just 17 – has been called “the greatest marvel of early maturity that the world has ever seen in music.”
Mendelssohn’s exquisite compositions will be brought to life by violin prodigies, piano virtuosos, and mature master teachers – including our new Artistic Director Nicholas Kitchen, leader of the Heifetz Institute Ensemble in Residence Borromeo Quartet, in a program that reflects the brilliance of Mendelssohn himself – full of youthful exuberance, masterful expression, and peerless musicianship.
Proceeds provide scholarship support for Heifetz Institute students, and further our mission of developing the expressive potential of the world’s most extraordinary young musicians.
